Despite his fame-hungry ambitions though, his plans could be derailed, particularly given the scathing put down he received from Simon Cowell when he auditioned for The X Factor. After it was revealed that Stone was up for eviction with housemate Georgia Salpa, Cassidy said: “’He’s so deluded, he thinks he’s such a star when he’s not. He thinks he’s going to be a judge on X Factor. It’s madness!”

While in the famed Big Brother house, which now opened its doors on Channel Five after C4 ditched the flailing reality show, Stone has made an impression, declaring at one stage that he has “had way more partners than he [housemate Frankie Cocozza] has”.

“Sex is what we do,” the Stone told Star magazine, “it’s just that in Britain no one likes to talk about it.”

Stone has also made enemies in the hosue in the shape of Reservoir Dogs ear-slicing Michael Madsen, who nominated him for eviction after beliving him to be a spy. “He’s trying too hard to be my pal,” Madsen said. “He seems very nervous and like he’s hiding something. I don’t trust him anymore.”

Stone will find out his fate on Wednesday when the series’ first eviction is announced.
